The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has flagged-off the distribution of relief materials to Isu communities in Arochukwu local government area Abia State.
The communities were recently involved in boundary clashes with their neighbours in Cross River State, which led to loss of lives, destruction of crops and properties worth millions of naira.
Speaking at the occasion, the member representing Arochukwu/Ohafia Federal Constituency at the National Assembly, Hon Uko Nkole expressed deep concern over the condition of the people.
Nkole who is also the House subcommittee chairman on Lands called for proper delineation of the boundaries between the communities and their neighbours to avoid future occurrence of such clashes.
Decrying the challenges incurred by the people which included displacement, Nkole added that on a personal level, he had been assisting the people.
He said, “Not minding the apparent danger involved and the warning against it, I was one of the first persons that visited the communities with relief materials no sooner than the clashes were over”.
